Tennessee throwing a watch party for super regional series against LSU

The demand for access to Tennessee baseball has never been higher. The Volunteers arrived on the national baseball stage this year, taking home the SEC East crown and earning a No. 3 national seed in the NCAA Tournament. After a perfect showing in the Knoxville regional, the Vols advance to a super regional matchup against the LSU Tigers.

Ticket demand for this weekend is through the roof. Tennessee sold out quickly, leaving plenty of fans without even a chance of getting in the gate. Knowing they had a problem on their hands, the athletics department worked quickly. Following the suggestion of Jayson Swain, Danny White and his team organized a watch party outside of Lindsey Nelson.

The ‘Big Orange Block Party’ is a free event to attend and will feature a big-screen of the live broadcast. Games for kids and concession stands will also be made available. The party will open at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, and will return 2.5 hours before first pitch on Sunday.

Tennessee and LSU are scheduled to begin on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. Game 2 will be played at either noon or 3 p.m. ET on Sunday.
